"The response from institutional investors has been strong. This suggests that the overall float available for trading might be limited leading to a higher GMP. We issued a *Subscribe with Caution* rating for this IPO, keeping in mind the long investment horizon required for high-growth companies that are currently loss-making," said Rajnath Yadav, Research Analyst at Choice Broking.
"For retail investors who have the capacity to hold for a long term, we would recommend they hold on to their investment. While investors with shorter time constraints can sell if they see listing gains. Our outlook for Zomato is positive in the long run," he added.
